Weekly planning

Let us take the strain

Reduce workload and ensure consistency with complete planning and content supplied for every phonics lesson in Reception and Year 1. We include sentences and images, plus Use in class resources to download, featuring our unique Little Wandle characters.


Easy-to-follow format

Weekly lesson content is provided in easy-to-follow half-termly blocks. We start with a lesson template and overview to set you up for success and culminate in assessment at the end of each block of teaching.


Support for your teaching

Our weekly grids clearly present the lesson structure and include visual prompts to Little Wandle resources. They also include handy links to our ‘How to’ videos for teachers, which model the sounds being taught in that week.


Resources include an editable assess and review weekly grid so that next steps teaching can be clearly planned and shared between staff as needed.
